I just got an e-mail update from Laura saying the edited pitch I’ve posted here is “excellent – very nicely compressed and made more urgent.” So there you have it, straight from the agent’s mouth. Oh, and the other cool thing she said was that she has editors interested now “so all we need is the ms”…
Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Not very literary, I know, but it’s the only word that fits the way I feel!
The thing that really got me going was the “s” on the end of “editors”. I doubt she’ll tell me which editors are interested, and even if she did I wouldn’t be able to post it here, but watch this space! I have a feeling everything’s going to turn out just fine. And heaven knows, in this economy, with the publishing industry hurting like it is, we can use all the hope there is.
Oh, and the polar bear in Parliament Square? Proves that stranger things have happened than a penniless English divorcee publishing a book. 😉
